"He's got to go through a normal spring training," manager Joe Girardi said. "That will obviously be (sped) up because we could get him more at-bats in certain situations, but we'd like to see him get 40, 50 at-bats."
"He had a really good day," manager Joe Girardi said. "He played three innings today, got three at-bats, went first to third and felt really good. He's expected to play five [innings] tomorrow."
"I'll definitely try to focus more on stretching it a little better before games; kind of do my prep work a little better instead of just walking out to the bullpen," Robertson said.
Cuddyer went 0 for 3 in the game, dropping his batting average to .317, the lowest it has been all season.
